right now. 50s already showing up on the map in the pocono mountains. 67 degrees popular number. trenton, philadelphia, millvil millville, dover as well as atlantic city. so as we look at the sat right and radar you can see mostly cloudy skies out there. a little bit of green showing up on the map. indicating a couple of sprinkles but a lot of this falling into some drier air there have been a couple of light showers out there but nothing to cancel any of your evening plans. as we expand the view you can see we're watching a frontal boundary well to the south. an area of low pressure. that will have to continue to watch for the latter part of the week and high pressure off to the north. so in between these systems, we'll see a little bit of a breeze over the next several days. so by the latter part of the week, still the high to the north. that area of low pressure to the south. here's one take on the forecast. the gfs model showing that the rain will likely try and move a little farther to the north for the upcoming weekend if this holds true we could see a few showers for the pope. another model the european model which has been a little bit of a
better model lately showing that that high is going to be pretty strong and suppress most of the rape fall to the south as we move toward the upcoming weekend. so here's the take right now as we move toward saturday. partly sunny, maybe a shower south and east, 74 degrees. and then as we move ahead to sunday, partly cloudy, temperatures in the low 70s. so it looks pretty good for the up coming papal weekend temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s overnight lows in the 50s and 60s. and once again, it look like most of the showers will stay to our south. >> okay. let's keep it that way. thank you, scott. >> let's check in with howard again down at the novacare complex. got to talk more about the eagles, howard. >> oh, yeah, i'm going to talk about the eagles. we'll come up with a word to describe that yesterday. we did at 5:00 o'clock. we'll do it again. we'll find out if this thing can be fixed. we hear from chip kelly and i just spoke to jason kelce. that will be coming up in sports.
♪ okay. it was not a happy day here at the novacare complex. not for the eagles much the players were in. technically their day off. chip kelly you could tell was not happy at his news conferen conference, but how would you describe this game, this loss yesterday by the eagles to the cowboys? there's lot of ways
but during the broadcast yesterday, here on fox, troy aikman described it the way he saw it. >> this is -- he's embarrassed. i'm embarrassed and everybody should be embarrassed. this has been poor performance i recall ever seeing in this league. >> there were a lot of embarrassing plays. so chip kelly was asked the same question today at his news conference. okay, chip, do you agree with aikman? was this an embarras embarrassing loss. >> i was embarrassed. that's not the way we are supposed to play football that's not what we're all about. but we didn't -- we didn't play well yesterday. i was embarrassed how we played yesterday. >> well, one of biggest problems they could run the football right now. if you look demarco murray yesterday, it's amazing. they were lucky to get in the plus yardage. he had 13 carries for 2 yards. that is not the way it's got to
happen. so, again, what account eagles do? so chip kelly asked, can this be fixed? >> yeah i feel like it can be fixed. you know, we've -- we've had a couple games here since we've been here where we haven't run the ball well. it's a fundamental football game. i think the blocking, throwing and catching aspect are the things we didn't catch very well last night. at times we didn't throw very well. >> obviously it looked really really bad on film as well but every time you go back and watch it you see where the mix takes are. you see what happens and you understand what you got to do to correct it. so i don't want to say -- it look terrible today as well, but, um, you feel confident you can make the corrections and fix a lot of the mistakes that went on. >> during jason kelce's and malcolm jenkins radio show i was doing with them, not happy, but they understand it's got to get better. you can't keep on going. well, you got another game and it's only two losses. they have to win next week against the jets.
back to you guys. >> all right. >> yeah. exactly. all right, howard, thank you very much. >> taking on the jets. >> exactly. >> metlife stadium. a lot of green going on. >> yes. better be eagles green. >> that's right. >> somebody tweeted me they thought that kermit the frog could be mascot this time around it's not easy being green. >> oh, no. >> i thought it was funny tweet. >> anyhow our weather is no joke because we got a lot of stuff happening. >> lot of stuff happening, of course, the big papal weekend it look like we're going to see seasonal temperatures in the low to mid 70s overnight lows in the 50s and watching the coast throughout the week. looks like there could be a slight chance of showers south and east. >> all right, scott, thank you. 27-year-old woman dices of heroin overdose in her apartment but her parents want to know more about the man with her that night. why does he get away? fox 29 investigates tonight at 10. >> and that does it for us here at 6:00. we'll see you right back here at 10:00v a great night. inside edition is up next.
